Go for the Greens Guacs On

East Coventry Elementary kicked off the event on Monday with Mr. Oswald greeting buses
This week, avocados were featured as Owen J. Roberts annual Go for the Greens celebration of good food and good fun! The Owen J. Roberts Wellness Foundation sponsors Go for the Greens each year through a generous grant by the Pottstown Area Health and Wellness Foundation to create healthy eating behaviors.

This East Vincent Elementary student was apprehensive, but pleased!
Chefs provided guacamole tastings at all elementary schools
Avocados have become very popular and it is no wonder. The nutrient-dense food contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals and heart healthy monounsaturated fat, making it a great food choice. 

North Coventry Elementary ran a poster contest!
In addition to tasting guacamole, school cafeterias featured extra greens all week including steamed broccoli florets, peas, roasted green beans, green bell peppers and mixed greens.

West Vincent Elementary students found the guacamole "better than Chipotle's"

French Creek Elementary School is serious about their avocados!

Join the fun and make your own guacamole, just like Chef Nels! This video was created by Senior Gretchen Harken
